I’ve been working on some smaller projects this last week. Here is a small mat made from a mini charm pack. I have no idea what the fabric line is but I’m very happy I had some coordinating material in my stash to bind it. It’s now on my nightstand replacing a very ugly mat that I quilted years ago. I love the zigzag quilting I did on it.
Here are two drawstring bags I made for my husband. He wasn’t fussy about material I used so I used a print that had been languishing in my stash for too long. I used a over lock stitch on the inside seams and didn’t line them like I usually would but I think they will serve his purposes.
I’ve had the Take 4 place mat pattern for a while and finally made it using some Northcott fabric I’d received through a monthly fat quarter club that I used to participate in.
I say they look “Christmas” but hubby says they don’t. I haven’t found backing material or quilted them yet. I enjoyed making these and will definitely be making this pattern again. It was a fun sew.
Last of all I quilted and machine bound this small 36″ square quilt. It was as fun to make as it was to finish.
This will eventually be donated to the quild’s comfort quilt program. The backing is the same orange as the binding. I’m really happy with how this turned out.

Lot of beautiful projects achieved! I love the mini charm quilt, and this bright and happy square quilt too. Your placemats are looking good, not really Christmas like to me either, but why not ;))
Thank you for linking at Patchwork & Quilts.
That comfort quilt is cheerful indeed — perfect for bringing a dose of sunshine to someone who needs it! And I do love the zigzag stitching on your charm squares. It adds just the subtlest extra something to make it sparkle!
Lots of fun finishes. I especially like your placemats – they are so cheerful! And the comfort quilt will surely make someone very happy. Thanks for sharing your projects on MCM!
Great finishes! I love the comfort quilt. Also love your place mats.
The 36″ square rainbow fabric quilt is a show stopper. Fun colors and fabrics!
Great looking placemats. I bet when all the Christmas decor is out, and you put these on a red or green table cloth, hubby will change his mind.
What wonderful projects all! Love your little mat, I am very good at small!! Might have to try one of those for fun!
Loved seeing your little charm squares mat! My to do list includes some replacement night stand mats also! That placemat pattern is so cute! I think Christmas also!
Oh what great projects!! I like that idea of working on small things – it probably fuels your creativity!
Lots of great finishes. I think I am partial to the placemats (must be at theme this month). Thanks for linking up to TGIFF
Really nice finishes, you can be very pleased with your efforts!
I agree your place mats look christmasy to me, cute design. Nice finish on your bright child’s quilt.
I think your placemats look christmasy. They certainly would not look out of place with Christmas decorations on a table. But you could probably dress them differently to say Spring, or Easter or several other occasions too. Very versatile 🙂 Thanks for linking up to Colour & Inspiration Tuesday.
The rainbow quilt is beautiful and I agree, the mats do look Christmasy. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.
You’ve gotten a lot accomplished this week. Love the charity quilt especially. So bright and cheery it will definitely brighten up someone’s life. Thank you for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
